Press Statement

…Laments Harassment Of Family Members

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organization 
(PPCO) decries the stoppage of transactions on all accounts belonging to 
PDP Vice presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, wife, his family members 
and their businesses by agencies of the Muhammadu Buhari administration.

Since his nomination, Peter Obi, apart from facing series of failed 
attempts by the APC to destroy his reputation, has also continued to 
receive all manners of threats and blackmail, including threats to his 
life and those of his wife and children.

Having realized that the majority of Nigerians are rallying behind the 
duo of Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi as the our Presidential and Vice 
Presidential candidates respectively, the Buhari Presidency and the All 
Progressives Congress (APC) have resorted to all manners of 
machinations, including smear campaigns and direct attacks on their 
persons and business concerns, in a bid to run them down.

The Buhari Presidency is intimidated by Peter Obi’s resume, 
particularly, his general acceptance as epitome of fiscal 
responsibility, frugality and transparency in governance.

Otherwise, why is the Presidency on a wild goose chase in investigating 
Peter Obi, who left office as Governor of Anambra state five years ago 
with a nationally acclaimed clean record, intact reputation for 
frugality, transparency, zero tolerance for corruption and leaving 
behind a huge saving of N75 billion naira in cash and investments; 
without owing any salaries, pensions, gratuities or even contractors for 
contracts executed.

The fact remains that the Buhari Presidency and the APC are merely 
shadow boxing in their attacks on Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi, as their 
records before Nigerians speak for them.

All discerning Nigerians know that the reasons for an investigation on a 
man like Peter Obi, is a journey to no where aimed to stifle him of 
funds as well as attempt to distract our campaign and divert attention 
from the failures of the Buhari administration.

It is ludicrous that President Buhari would continue to condone the 
looting of our treasuries by his party leaders and the cabal in his 
Presidency, which even, the First Lady had even alluded to, only to be 
using government agencies to attempt to blackmail our Presidential and 
vice Presidential candidates whose reputations stand clear before all 

The PPCO reminds President Buhari that neither he nor Vice President 
Yemi Osinbajo was in 2015, as candidates, harassed, attacked at the 
airport or subjected to blackmails, and wonder why they are now 
employing such tactics just because Nigerians have resolved to do away 
with them, come 2019.
